Strawberry & Walnut Summer Salad Recipe

This strawberry and walnut salad is the perfect summer salad to go with a Sunday afternoon roast chicken or roast beef. It’s light, delicious and the walnuts, pomegranate and strawberries add a unique twist to a traditional salad, plus it looks amazing when arranged in a ring around the edge of a large serving platter or board.

What You’ll Need For A Strawberry & Walnut Salad

  • 1 Cup of Shredded Lettuce Leaves
  • 1 Quarter of a Cucumber Thinly Sliced
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Cherry or Vine Tomatoes
  • 1 Small Block of Feta Cheese Cubed
  • 10-15 Olives
  • 8 Baby Corn Quartered
  • 1 Cup of Strawberry Halves
  • 1/3 Cup of Pomegranate Pips
  • 1/2 Cup of Shelled Walnut Halves
  • Red & Yellow Pepper To Garnish

How To Make The Strawberry & Walnut Salad

Start out with a large round serving platter or board and arrange the cucumber slices at the bottom to form a thick ring around the outside. Sprinkle the lettuce leaves on next followed by the cherry tomatoes, corn, olives and feta. Next sprinkle on the pomegranate pips and then arrange the strawberries and walnuts on the top so that they stand out.

Garnish one side of the ring with alternating slices of red and yellow pepper. You can arrange some strawberries and walnuts in between the pepper slices for more colour. If you enjoy peppers, thinly slice up one ring and sprinkle it into the salad as well. The yellow tends to distract from the red already in the salad so stick to only adding the red pepper.

Place your servers into the centre of the ring and add your favorite dressings in the centre. An Italian vinaigrette dressing works well to contrast the sweet in the strawberries otherwise if you prefer something a bit more creamy then a creamy blue cheese dressing is also delicious.

If you’re looking for other creative ways to serve a salad, have a look at our easy Caprese skewers, they’re both decorative and delicious and they’re perfect for occasions requiring “finger foods”.
